Hope Lutheran Church was established in Dearborn in 1947 as a mission congregation of the United Lutheran Church in America. The first worship services were actually held in June of 1946 in the homes of future members. They soon found a more permanent home for their worship services by renting space at the Penn Elementary School one block from the future home of the congregation.
Hope Lutheran Church was officially formed on March 16, 1947 when 80 members signed the charter establishing Hope as a congregation. The new congregation began to grow and began to save money for a new church building which was finally dedicated on September 17, 1950 at the corner of Carlysle and Madison Avenues.
Hope continued to expand its membership and its facilities throughout the next 20 years. A new sanctuary and fellowship hall were dedicated in 1960 and the church was expanded to its current size when a large educational unit was constructed to replace the original church building in 1970.
Today, Hope Lutheran Church is a multi-generational congregation that invites you to truly come as you are to experience the love of God and the fellowship of our community of faith. It is our prayer that you find a renewed and revived faith in the One who came to save us all and that the words of Scripture come alive for you.
